Intellectuals get to be intellectual, such a thing a thing is DEEPLY unfair to all of the non-intellectual peoples.

Intellectuals are overrepresented in universities: where are the non-intellectual minorities?

Intellectuals get to write books.

Intellectuals get to read books.

Intellectuals get to talk about their opinions.

It's okay for intellectuals to be ugly, because they are intellectual.

Intellectuals get to have arguments, while this is difficult for the non-intellectual minorities.

Intellectuals get jobs as professors and important people, non-intellectual people generally don't.

A woman can be an intellectual.

Intellectuals get to read 'Mein Kampf' on the premise that they're merely analysing it.

If an intellectual wants to be poor, it's okay because they're an intellectual.

As can be seen...there is indisputable intellectual privilege taking place.

I know right!!?? We need laws against intellectuals and we should let non-intellectuals get into colleges with affirmative action? Did you know that 99.999% of Harvard acceptances are given to intellectuals? The other 0.001% of non-intellectuals were accepted as a joke!

This privilege and oppression against non-intellectuals must stop ):

Absolutely, it's about time something was done. This mistreatment of non-intellectuals is ridiculously unfair and in violation with their human rights.

Yep...equality must be served!

Intellectuals get to be intellectual, such a thing a thing is DEEPLY unfair to all of the non-intellectual peoples.

Intellectuals are overrepresented in universities: where are the non-intellectual minorities?

Intellectuals get to write books.

Intellectuals get to read books.

Intellectuals get to talk about their opinions.

It's okay for intellectuals to be ugly, because they are intellectual.

Intellectuals get to have arguments, while this is difficult for the non-intellectual minorities.

Intellectuals get jobs as professors and important people, non-intellectual people generally don't.

A woman can be an intellectual.

Intellectuals get to read 'Mein Kampf' on the premise that they're merely analysing it.

If an intellectual wants to be poor, it's okay because they're an intellectual.

As can be seen...there is indisputable intellectual privilege taking place.

I used to be an intellectual, but reading your post dropped my IQ 30 points. Now I've lost my intellectual privilege, and it's all your fault for posting this manure.
